Gyrfa - Career

Mae fy ngyrfa wedi cymryd sawl tro annisgwyl. Wedi graddio gyda doethuriaeth yn 2004, roedd fy mryd ar fod yn academydd. Dyna a wnes am ddwy flynedd, cyn symud i'r Cynulliad Cenedlaethol fel Gohebydd Gwleidyddol cylchgrawn GOLWG. Bellach, ers 2007, rwyf wedi treulio'r rhan fwyaf o'm gyrfa yn y sector gwifoddol yng Nghymru, weithio'n cyfuno swydd ffurfiol gyda'm gwaith ar y delyn. Ar hyn o bryd rwyf yn gweithio'n llawn amser ym myd anabledd dysgu, fel swyddog achos dros elusen Mencap. 

Gwybodaeth pellach:
My career has taken several unexpected turns. Having graduated with a PhD in 2004, my initial ambition was to be an academic, and that's what I did for two years, before moving to the National Assembly for Wales as the Political Correspondent for GOLWG magazine. Since 2007, I have spent most of my time in the voluntary sector in Wales, sometimes combining a formal role with my other work as a harpist. At the moment I work full-time in the world of learning disability, as a caseworker for Mencap Cymru.
